A Big Triangle

This week's PhotoHunt theme is triangle.

Across Australia you can find about 150 large structures called Australia's Big Things.  The buildings or sculptures have reached an international cult like status, and are the frequently the focus of road trips.
The large triangle shaped object in my picture is one of Australia's Big Things.  It is labeled The World's Biggest Sundial, and is found in Singleton, New South Wales.  The name is a bit deceiving, since there are a few bigger sundials around the world, but it is the biggest in Australia.  It was a Bicentennial gift to the city from the Lemington Mine in 1987.


  1. Teehee at the thought of a series of objects known as Australia's Big Things! And to think that they are the focus of road trips!!! :D

  2. Hi Maya, that' a very cool photo and really large choice for this week's theme. The Big Things buildings and sculptures idea sounds very fun.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. I love the concept of Big Things! Road trips to see them sound like a lot of fun. This is a nice sun dial (and it looks pretty big to me).

  4. Looking forward to Anstey Hill pics;)

  5. That is a great sundial. It looks a little hard to read being that large. :)

  6. YSTL, we have yet to do a Big Thing Road Trip, but have been known to make a detour to see a Big thing!

    Hi Kathy, some of the sculptures are actual buildings and pretty interesting.

    Annie, there are several Big Things located in one area of NSW and one of these days I want to plan a road trip to visit them.

    Marta, the sundial is a round about, so not only does the size make it hard to read, but also the fact that your driving around it!

  7. THat is one impressive sundial! Great take on the theme. Sorry for the late visit
